Gordon, have you actually tried using Cricket Graph III on the OS X
machines? OS X can open some programs through an older OS, which comes
with OS X. Worth a try before you abandon your favorite software.

We have been using Cricket Graph III in our Mac-based physics lab for
quite a few years, and it has served us very well. It has not been on the
market for several years, but this has not been a problem until now even
though I would have been happy to upgrade to a newer version. Recently we
purchased a number of iMacs, which run OS X or OS 9.2, neither of which
support Cricket Graph III, so I need to find another graphing software
package.

Cricket Graph was a nice package, and I was disappointed that Computer
Associates discontinued it. I am now looking for a suitable replacement
and would appreciate any and all suggestions. I realize that MS-Excel is a
standard package and is readily available, but I don't think it produces
the quality of graphs that Cricket Graph could. It took a little while,
but once students became comfortable with it, they were able to create
some very professional-looking graphs. Thanks, in advance, for your help.
